New CEO Kaunis Iron

On 1 September 2019 Klas Dagertun takes up his appointment as CEO of Kaunis Iron AB. He also becames CEO of the parent group Kaunis Holding AB and the sister company Malmtransport Norr AB.

Klas Dagertun is currently CFO of the group and has been involved in operations since the decision was made to restart the mine. He has previous experience in leading positions in the industry in general.

”It feels incredibly thrilling to take the baton and lead operations into the future,” says Klas Dagertun. “We are a fantastic organisation together with our partners, and have good prospects to build a long-term sustainable mining operation in Pajala.”

Per-Erik Lindvall is handing over responsibility for operative management but will assist Klas as CEO and will be involved in issues to do with expansion plans, prospecting and permit applications.

”Per-Erik has done a fantastic job but has always made it clear that he sees himself as a short-term solution,” says chair of the board Anders Sundström. We are still a start-up and need to use our resources wisely. Per-Erik has long experience in precisely these areas so it is natural that as a board member he is engaging operatively in these strategically vital questions.”

Recruitment of a new CFO will start immediately.

 

Anders Sundström, Board Chairman
